A “Bonanza” of Good

Cowboys and Aliens.

(The new) 3:10 To Yuma.

John Carpenter’s Vampires.

All The Pretty Horses.

Easy Rider.

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.

If it was a (Sci-Fi-/horror-) Western, there’s a very good chance it was filmed at Imogene Hughes’s Bonanza Creek Ranch — so-named because, well, “Bonanza” was also shot there — just south of Santa Fe.

But listen closely during this tour of the jail, saloon, and high-noon locales, as the good lies not only in the backdrop, but in what secretly makes Imogene happy.
